College athletics logos

Stale: DyceBot (talk) 07:03, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Article(s): too many to list, but see here

Request: Currently, a whole lot of non-free images of college athletics logos are being used in too many articles, when we have possible free equivalents. Fancy graphical logos can be replaced with text-only logos in many cases. Your task is to look at the list here to find current articles that need such image replacements, then search for official sources of text only logos, and upload them to the Commons. Having the logos in SVG format is strongly recommended. More often than not, there is either a Collegiate Licensing Company sheet, or a branding/manual of style PDF for the university, where such text-only logos can be extracted and saved as SVG (keep in mind, official sources is important, as many of the "free vector logo" websites have either unofficial logos, or redrawn logo knock-offs). Look at the crossed out items on the list, and my upload history at the Commons for examples of what I'm looking for (and for example sources where I extracted the files). I'd be glad to make the replacements myself with AWB, I just need help tracking down and uploading the text-only logos.Andrew c [talk] 17:27, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

  • BTW, a few can be found User:BQZip01/FBS Trademarked logos, but many of those are either not in SVG format, are not athletics logos, and/or are not official logos, so this is why I'm asking the new logos be located and uploaded.-Andrew c [talk] 17:29, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Here is a list of logos that need non-free PD-text replacements from official sources:

Request: Need SVG... Alokprasad84 (talk) 17:17, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

  • That is a pretty complex logo. I doubt that we'll be able to locate a vector version from an official source, and there isn't enough detail to redraw it by hand (and such redrawing will introduce errors into the logo). -Andrew c [talk] 01:00, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
Earlier version of logo. May both of logo have enough detail to redraw it. Please try.Alokprasad84 (talk) 08:35, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
For official logos and such, we often cannot simply redraw them because we'd be creating cheap knock offs that wouldn't represent the university accurately. Universities and companies often pay thousands and thousands of dollars on marketing and branding, and we need to respect their vision. There is no way anyone could accurately redraw that image in SVG format, and still do the university brand justice. Our only other option is to search through official publications and see if we can't find an already exiting copy of the logo in vector format. But additionally, non-free content is supposed to be at a reduced size and resolution, and a too detailed SVG could break that policy. Why do you want this image in SVG format? Why should we spend our time and resources working on non-free content that can only be used in one or two webpages in a small resolution? -Andrew c [talk] 13:19, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
Actually I just wanted that this logo should be in svg as other universitie's logos.Alokprasad84 (talk) 13:46, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
Just for the record, the reason why a lot of universities logos are in SVG is because they were made available on those universities websites, not because users here redrew the logos (a practice I discourage greatly). That said, it appears there are at least 3 or 4 different version of this "logo" on the university's website, and it is more of a seal than a logo created by a branding/design/marketing firm. Such instances (seals, coat of arms and such), I feel it is less important to source the content from only official sources, and I probably wouldn't outright oppose a hand redrawing of this seal (still, this doesn't change my position than it is better to spend time and energy on creating free content, then working on limited non-free content ;) I've also searched the web for a vector version of the seal already available, which I came up empty (but did see the 3-4 different versions).-Andrew c [talk] 21:09, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Why did you tag this image as PD-self? If you created it yourself, you should have access to the original vector drawing, no? I think you have mistagged this image, and I believe strongly is non-free and should be retagged as such (or you need to send in OTRS permission verification that it is your own content). -Andrew c [talk] 13:22, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Hello Andrew, Yeah you are correct I didnt tagged image as PD-self, only just uploaded other version. But now I have changed the licensing issue and make compatible as other university logo eg New York University.Alokprasad84 (talk) 13:41, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Flag of Nyasaland

Stale: DyceBot (talk) 07:02, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
use this shaping, maybe?

Article(s): Flag of Nyasaland

Request: someone that is good with animals, please help. The cheetah needs redrawn for shape and lifelike features. I found http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/mw_his.html, which is not much better, but has the colors closer, and I suggest the silhouette at File:Scout Association of Nyasaland.svg as a good period match. Chris (クリス • フィッチ) (talk) 04:54, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

It's not only the cheetah, the whole coat of arms is inaccurate and needs to be redrawn. The one at Flags Of The World at the above link is much better, but there might be other inaccuracies, especially when you compare it to the one at this link. As you could imagine, there's a lack of related resources on the web, so I resorted to old postage stamps of Nyasaland, although they can help with the shape only, not the colors. While the same shape you found at File:Scout Association of Nyasaland.svg features nicely on some of them, the coat of arms itself has a cheetah similar to those on the above links, so we can't use the silhouette. Now all I have to do is find someone who owns said stamps and ask them for a good scan, which is doable, but might take a while.

So, this file is now on my to do list. However, if anybody can find better sources and/or want to do it themselves, please feel free to jump in! Regards, -- Orionisttalk 21:26, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Oligodendrocyte image needed

Request: We need an illustration of an oligodendrocyte forming the myelin sheath around a central nervous system axon, for the article, Brain. There are no free images that I can find. I list here several links to non-free illustrations. Would anybody on this project be able to knock up an illustration for us. If not, I'll give it a shot with pencil and paper.

Image's request under progression Request taken by Andrew c.: I gave this a shot. Used an existing neuron diagram, and just added the oligodendrocyte. Check out File:Neuron with oligodendrocyte and myelin sheath.svg. Tell me what you think. Maybe it could be cropped even closer, and the zoomed in detail box remove. -Andrew c [talk] 00:25, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Wow! I'm glad you beat me to this request because you've done a very good job! I'd only suggest - apart from a closer crop - that the action of wrapping be demonstrated more clearly, something like [8], and for the detail box something like [9]. Maybe you can do that by making the sheaths opaque and adding some shadow? I don't know. I hope you don't find my suggestions annoying. Regards, -- Orionisttalk 17:32, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
That is SO impressive. Thank you. I have left a note at Talk:Brain inviting comments. I'll post a summary here in a few days. Beautiful! Anthony (talk) 18:14, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
Coming here from Talk:Brain, I also want to congratulate and thank you on excellent work! A few personal opinions: I agree that a little more cropping would be good, but I definitely would keep the zoomed detail box. Please label the nucleus of the Oligodendrocyte as the "Nucleus", and delete the nucleus (including its yellow area) from the inset and from each of the myelin sheaths. Please delete both instances of "(Schwann cell)". (Thus, these labels would simply be, respectively, "Myelin Sheath" and no label at all, with the nucleus removed from the inset. The idea of wanting this image is that we wanted one that does not refer to Schwann cells specifically.) Also, please make the Oligodendrocyte (now magenta) the same blue color as the Myelin Sheaths. (The idea is that they are parts of the same cell.) Perhaps my fellow editors from Brain will have other ideas. Thanks again! --Tryptofish (talk) 18:33, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
I want to first reiterate that all I did was add the oligodendrocyte to an already exiting, very superb diagram of a neuron. The vast majority of the work should be credited to LadyofHats. Next, I really appreciate the comments. They are quite helpful, and I'll get to work on them ASAP. The reason why I had the oligodendrocytes a different color from the sheath was I was taking cues from this and this. But I can easily change the color, and transparency, and try to make the wrapping more apparent, and fix the labels, and zoom in a bit and... yeah, just work on it some more. Will probably post another draft in a couple hours (rather upload over the original). Thanks again for the feedback, it is really helpful (and I wish I had it when I was doing my D&C diagram last month).-Andrew c [talk] 18:47, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
Maybe we should wait a little in case any other Brain editors would like to offer suggestions. Anthony (talk) 19:02, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
Yes, that's true. I was only speaking for myself. --Tryptofish (talk) 19:08, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
Can I suggest we take the discussion to Talk:Brain and present Andrew with an agreed set of requested changes in a few days? Anthony (talk) 19:18, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
Ah, see also herding cats! Fine with me. --Tryptofish (talk) 19:26, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
Thank you so much for your efforts, Andrew c and Narayanese. Discussion has now settled at Talk:Brain. Andrew c's last version is nearly there, but would it be possible to remove the red strands at the bottom left, and the little yellow ovals visible in the sheaths (as in Narayanese' version [10])? Anthony (talk) 20:33, 17 July 2010 (UTC)
  • OK, uploaded a version with those changes over the #3 draft. -Andrew c [talk] 03:57, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Cool - great job - I probably should have thought of that. I'm always a bit wary of online translators, and I know no Spanish at all, but I don't suppose much could be wrong in that. I'm glad you did it, because I was struggling to pick out the red/purple difference a bit. I wonder if they should be made a little more different in colour than you already have done, just to be easier to distinguish. That is, unless of course those colours are particularly standard or significant. Are you going to upload it to Commons so it can be used on es?  Begoontalk 01:39, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Thank you so much, both of you. I use to work in sp WP, so I just see your message. Everything is great. Don´t worry about the colours, I can change it myself (I´m talking about the dark red and the violet because they´re too similar). --Andreateletrabajo (talk) 06:54, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Firefox renders the text under the logomark, when I open the SVG directly, which leads me to believe this is an issue with the SVG conflicting with Wikimedia's png renderer. Is it an embedded font?

Graphist opinion(s):

Er, just in case you didn't realise, that's a photo of a flag flapping in the wind, hardly an illustration. It contains distortions and extra information (e.g. pole, cloud, shadow) that make generating a reasonable representation difficult (how do we know what angle to make the yellow bit above the centre of the shield?).

Request: Create an SVG version - thanks. Connormah 20:05, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): I'm not sure if the shield border is black or green... In the png it's pixellated with bits of green, and I can't find a better guide. It doesn't look right in the light green, but I'm not 100% sure. Maybe it's a darker green? If anyone knows better, please change it, or let us know.  Begoontalk 13:39, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Actually when I looked again, I'm almost certain it's a black bar at the top - green remainder of border. The green from http://www.kirchardt.de/ seems to work. If I'm wrong there are versions with all black and all green borders in the history you can revert to - use the latest 3 versions if you need to revert - I fixed a slight gap in a path.  Begoontalk 15:12, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Capitol Loop

Resolved

Article(s): Capitol Loop

Request: I started converting the PNG into an SVG. I've cleaned up the marker graphic by removing the improper blue background and evenly spacing the stripes. The rounded corners match the FHWA specs for highway signs, and the unique font has been cloned as best as possible. (In Adobe Illustrator, I'm getting little pieces missing in a few of the corners though.) The problem is recreating the Capital Dome, as that's above my current abilities. Imzadi 1979  23:30, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Graphist opinion:

  • I only did this quickly - the dome is a trace which is roughly masked and retouched, so the file is really too big - but it might help if you want to tidy it up a bit... Sorry it'll be a bit hard to edit, because I used an autotrace, and so there are lots of odd paths in there - if someone wants to redraw it that would be much better, but it would be a fairly big job which i can't fit in right now. Hope this is some help - the letterring is closer, if nothing else.  Begoontalk 05:34, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
    • I'm appreciating the help. The traces I attempted in Illustrator didn't come out well. I'm still new at more complex vector art, so the settings I was trying just didn't work very well. Fortunately, most highway markers are much simpler shapes, or the official PDFs have vector art in them for the extraction, not so here. Any further assistance from the graphics gurus here is appreciated. Imzadi 1979  10:48, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
I had a stab at this and redrew the whole dome from scratch. I used the official PDFs and photos of the dome as a reference. It might need some small tweaks here and there. Please feel free to modify or even revert if you don't like the result. regards, -- Orionisttalk 22:02, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

I just didn't have that flavour of Helvetica std LT where I was. I guess I could have removed it anyway, but I like to see any changes I make visually. It uses that font and Bitstream Vera Sans, plus there are effects applied to the text which Illustrator was complaining about. It may work in Inkscape with the right fonts installed - but the type would need converting to paths for the SVG to render at Wikipedia - which is kind of a catch-22, because you then need someone with the fonts (and preferably a "master" file with type not as paths...) to edit it in future if any of the type changes.  Begoontalk 07:27, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

May I suggest matching the nominal sizes of the files, at 250 or 300 px wide? Not that it's something important, but I feel since the files are related, it's better if they preview at the same nominal size. -- Orionisttalk 06:54, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
Please bring down the nominal size of INC SVG. Its too large, and may violate fair use rationale which does not permit large nominal sizes. Additionally, please change the current white portions of the BJP symbol to transparency. Thanks! JovianEye (talk) 12:18, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
Not that I see how it makes much difference, but I reduced the scale. SVGs by their very nature are display-size independent. That is they can be scaled to any size without any loss of resolution. The fair-use guideline about not displaying them any larger than necessary just means that the graphic's size needs to be specified in the article. The fact remains, if I specify the size to be 1000px, I will get a crystal clear image, even if the nominal size is 115px. As for the BJP symbol, I figured out how to make those areas transparent. Imzadi 1979  15:45, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
It's strange that it does seem to make a difference to the wikipedia editors, but it does seem that nominal size matters for SVG files (perhaps because that's what people see when they click through to the image). Nominal sizes should be small for logos, otherwise the image will get a 'please reduce the size of this' tag added to it. gringer (talk) 11:24, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

That's what you get for having a photo as your logo! This Wipro logo epitomizes everything you should not do when designing a logo! On a serious note, I don't think we should encourage this kind of requests. First of all this is a photo and vectorizing it would be pointless. You did the right thing by acquiring the logo from the company's website, and that what we should advise requesters to do, if they can't find it there, they can try e-mailing the company or extracting it from published documents (PDFs etc.) to get an exact copy. Another issue is that the copyright status of commercial logos is always dodgy, and they see very limited use.

Graphist opinion:

Ok - I've had a go at this. There are 2 things to note, and check.

  • Firstly, it's a bit "rough" due to the low quality original - I had to approximate in places.
  • Secondly, and more importantly - the wording: I can't correct this, because I don't know the language - what I did was copy and paste the characters you used above, then used a font called Zawgyi-One. There are some differences in some of the characters - but I don't know how to fix them. Notably the 'c' shaped portions above some characters are missing, and there is a 'J' shaped portion not present in the original on some characters. Quite probably I just need a different font - but I have no idea which one. (the text is converted to paths in the version I uploaded)  Begoontalk 01:43, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
Since you're using Zawgyi-One, try replacing that with this text in the parentheses: ( ရန္ကုန္တိုင္း ). Zawgyi-One uses glyphs that don't appear in Unicode, so that's why there's that mumbo jumbo. Hope that helps.--Hintha (talk) 02:23, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

So you might want to use it in an article so that it can be valid as Fair Use, or maybe use a {{hangon}} template and provide a reason. Regards, -- Orionisttalk 05:49, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
Thank you, I totally didn't see that this was done, I am sorry for the delay. It's great, thank you!--Chris (クリス • フィッチ) (talk) 11:19, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Request: remove heavy brown shadowing, vectorize if you can... Chris (クリス • フィッチ) (talk) 04:41, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

  • I don't exactly think this is a candidate for vectorizing. It's too complex, and tedious; the file gets to be large and very imperfect. Vector is for simple shapes, to be honest.  ono  04:50, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
Hint: It's just the center of this! 76.117.247.55 (talk) 09:46, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

 Done: Removed curtain, changed black to actual path, clipped out extra bits. We should make a "produced / modified by the Graphic lab" template gringer (talk) 15:30, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

So, can this be marked as resolved? §hepTalk 04:05, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Totally missed this, yes please, that's great!--Chris (クリス • フィッチ) (talk) 06:04, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Request: Redraw as SVG. And don't make it perfect rectangle both sides should be round. Eg:here.--Kkm010 | Talk with me 14:46, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

I've removed the GLNF template, since this is a free image so you don't need to use the GLNF when requesting. Have a look at the license, it usually contains a red © symbol for non-free images, in which case you have to use a GLNF. Otherwise you can post a request in the normal way. I know this whole copyright issue might seem baffling at first (it was for me!), but it's quite easy and very useful when working with images in Wikipedia.

Graphist opinion(s):

Image's request under progression Request taken by Stepshep. Should be pretty easy. §hepTalk 19:11, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

 Done I'm not sure why Suriname was colored in the PNG, so I left it uncolored and added countries that have joined since the original was created. That look okay/accurate? §hepTalk 20:03, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks its GOOD.--Kkm010 | Talk with me 03:59, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Menstrual cycle

Resolved

Article(s): Menstrual cycle

Request: Can someone edit this diagram to make the dip in basal body temperature less extreme. The dip seen around day 13 (right before the big increase) should be slight, not dramatic. The editors at Menstrual cycle won't use this diagram on the article until this gets fixed :( Kaldari (talk) 02:34, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): I've moved the low point around day 13 up by just less than half a division. If that's too much or too little just say so - it's easy to alter now because I've converted the graph line from a complex filled shape to be a single line in its own layer.  Begoontalk 05:41, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Awesome! That looks great! Kaldari (talk) 16:50, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
